I host my Python courses with Moodle. Students can work on any system.
At the end of their lab session, they use a browser to save a zipped
folder with their intermediate results within Moodle. Later they can
download that zipped folder anywhere and continue with the lab. (Moodle
does not carry Python, so it should be installed on the system). No need
to burn CDs or even use flash (although I would personally save a backup
copy somewhere.)
